I loved the redwork embroidery on a pillow in one of my favorite craft books, Handmade Home by Amanda Soule. I wanted to find a similar pattern with a “motherly” theme so I headed over to the site she got hers from, PatternBee. I searched the web as well (and snagged 10 swagbucks while I was at it!) and found some great resources I thought I’d share for anyone else interested.

Filling Mama's big shoes...

Kathleen’s comment on the September Giveaway post this morning reminded me… it’s time for my promised review of a KatManDew Designs nursing necklace I’ve been using with Tigger over the past month! I thought it would be fun to style my review in a way many moms can connect with; simple, clear, and to-the point: the ABCs.

How to Enter

There are two ways to enter… and you can do so over and over all month long!

  1. Comment with something relevant on any other MamaWit post, any day this month (September 2010). So that I can contact the winner, you have to type in your e-mail address when you leave your comment. Don’t worry, other readers can’t see it.
  2. Link to any September MamaWit post on your blog or in a tweet. If it doesn’t automatically send a “pingback” (which would show up with the comments), comment on THIS POST with the link. You can do this as many times as you would like, as long as all the links are different.

Amazon Kindle eBook Reader

Did you know that Amazon.com offers thousands of free books for download? And you don’t even need a Kindle (pictured above)! I just figured this out last weekend, and I’m thrilled so I wanted to share all the details before I forget.

All you have to do is get an (also free) application for wherever you want to read the free ebooks — your iPhone or iPod Touch, Mac, PC, iPad, Blackberry, or Android. My husband and I both use and enjoy the iPod touch and Mac Kindle readers. One day, maybe when we’re homeschooling and future generations have come out, we’d like an iPad for more of a book-like feel.

Also, I figured out a great way to keep updated about what free books are available: there are almost 20,000 classics always available here, and limited-time newer releases can be found for free here! You can even sign-up at Change Detection to find out when new books have been added for free. Just type in the page address “http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=2245146011” and your own e-mail address, and you’ll get an email update whenever there’s something new! Update: Now I email subscribe to http://www.pixelofink.com/ which works much better. I just signed up and can’t wait to get some good, free, books! I think my first will be The Autobiography of Madame Guyon, which is an older edition of a book I had on my book wishlist. Yay for reading, and especially yay for free!
